To All Who Contributed:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you that had a hand in making the Ed Tashjian Benefit a resounding success.
It only makes sense that a great guy like Ed, who has generated decades of goodwill being an amazing ambassador for the sport of vintage racing, would rally a crowd of loving supporters like we witnessed yesterday. Proof positive that good karma definitely pays off.
Thanks to all the competitors, friends and families that made the effort to be in attendance. You filled the pits and the hearts of the Tashjian family!
Thanks to all the folks that donated items to the auction. Mike Doughty from Yamaha Motor Corp. came through in a big way with multiple passes to the Monster Energy Cup, while Broc Bonham worked the right channels at Fox Racing to donate signed jerseys and prints. Heck,  Robert Hinsch donated a 1988 Husky 430! These three donations alone generated a significant contribution.
And our other great sponsors, UNI Filter, 100%, Matrix, Vintage Iron, Yamalube, Star Cycle and everyone else that donated, thanks a million!
To all the bidders and auction winners, thank you. Especially the “Big Guns” like Mike Anderson, Brad Morrison and Mark Gerloff. They made it rain when it came to stepping up for the cause. Thanks boys, we’re proud to have you in our group.
Last but not least, to all the ARX staffers, Mike Johnstone, Bret Bonham, Broc Bonham, Chris Compise, Chris McQuillen, Nina Hamrock, Katie Doughty and present in spirit, Tom (out of town working on secret military stuff) Chavez. You did good. Really good! You make daunting tasks look easy.
Special thanks to my one and only Kim, for creating amazing 2x4 trophies, generating all the auction bid sheets, selling shirts and decals as well as adding some enthusiasm and spirit to the auction. She pretties up the place. Thanks too to Sarah Vaughn (Chris Compise’s main squeeze) who jumped in and did a great job.
Hopefully we will NEVER have to do another benefit race for an injured ARX member.
Ride fast. Ride safe. See you all October 22nd at Glen Helen.
